Itinerary

Day 1 Krakow Arrival

Arrival in Krakow, private transfer from the airport to Hotel Q Plus Krakow Centrum or similar. Check-in for two nights and welcome meeting.

Day 2 Krakow City Sightseeing and Wieliczka Salt Mine

For half a millennium Krakow was the royal capital of Poland and for centuries the city walls have guarded its traditions and secrets. The morning sightseeing tour takes us to the Old Town with the St. Mary's Church, the Jagiellonian University, the Cloth Halls and Wawel with the Wawel Castle and the Wawel Cathedral. Afternoon excursion to the famous Wieliczka Salt Mine, an amazing labyrinth of tunnels going down as far as 327m. Evening optional Polish dinner at Restaurant Hawelka.

Day 3 Krakow – Warsaw: Jasna Gora Monastery and the Black Madonna

We leave for Czestochowa, the spiritual heart of Poland, where we visit the Jasna Gora Monastery with the Black Madonna. Through the flat low-laying plain of Central Poland we reach Warsaw in the early afternoon. Check-in at Hotel Radisson Blu Sobieski or similar for two nights.

Day 4 Warsaw City Sightseeing and Palace on the Water

Warsaw is essentially a post-war city with a meticulously reconstructed Old Town. The morning sightseeing tour includes the Royal Route and the Old Town with the Royal Castle, St. John's Cathedral, the Old Town Market Square and the Barbican. Afternoon excursion to the Royal Lazienki Park with the Palace on the Water. Evening optional Polish dinner at Restaurant Dawne Smaki.

Day 5 Warsaw – Gdansk: Old Town Walking tour

Leaving Warsaw, we depart by train bound for Gdansk. Like a mini-state all to itself, Gdansk has a unique feel, cultured, wealthy and cosmopolitan, that sets it apart from all other cities in Poland. Upon arrival to Gdansk, check in at Hotel Mercure Gdansk or similar. During the afternoon old town walking tour we see Dlugi Targ, or Long Market, St. Mary’s Church, St. Bridget’s Church, Artus Court and Gdansk Town Hall.

Day 6 Gdansk Tri-City & Malborg Castle

Morning tour of Tri-City – a conurbation uniting Gdansk with the lively coastal towns of Sopot and Gdynia. The tour along the 35km Gulf of Gdansk includes a visit to the famous pier in Sopot and a lovely organ concert at the Oliwa Church. In the afternoon we travel out of Gdansk to Malborg Castle. Our first stop is at Elblag, a town with a bitter-sweet past and a seemingly bright future. After a short visit of the Old Town with the red bricked St. Nicolas Cathedral we continue to pay a visit to Malbork Castle, a massive fortress founded by the Teutonic knights in the 13th century and beautifully sat on the banks of the sluggish Nogat River. Evening optional farewell dinner at the prestigious Restaurant Pod Lososiem.
